I'm just extending the basic metaphor. If you take a patch of land in the wilderness and try to turn it into a crop field, what might need to be done first?
What obstacles might need to be cleared from a person's mind before he's even ready to listen to the gospel?

Rapture is the end of time... but time does not end in the future.
The end of time event is always now... it is the recognition that there is no time.
Ever present and aware of what is present.
Time is a concept that can only arise presently.
I think people idol worship the gospel and Jesus.

I think people idol worship the gospel and Jesus. People are fans of religion. People are not spiritual. It's okay. Everyone needs a hobby.
Here's a video on the subject of the gospel is war-time occupational propaganda:

God showed me how the other person felt by giving me a taste of what they felt and the damage I caused towards their personal beliefs, instead of showing love and respect; I disregarded their ideas about what they thought or felt about God.
When I was shown how I conducted myself, I would not call it zealous..... I call it being mean and disrespectful and very embarrassing.
Don't get caught up with those who want to argue or twist bible scripture. Leave them alone and work on your own faults. Examine your own life and find the mistakes and sins that YOU make and make the necessary changes in your life. By the time you are done with yourself you will find yourself to be an elderly person or dead.
God bless you all
